The Portuguese initially went to the territory and southern China in 1513, subsequent to exchanging with Goa and Malacca.
 By 1535, the Portuguese were permitted to anchor ships and build stockrooms in Macau. In 1557, Macau went under Portuguese principle, when they obtained a rent from Beijing. The name Macau was utilized by the Portuguese, derived from what local people called the region "Mama Gao," meant a "position of A Ma," the goddess of mariners.
